My art reflects my continuous search for happiness
Stephen has been a selling artist for many years and continues to explore his passion. As a young boy from the outback town of Broken Hill Australia, Stephen showed an early talent for drawing, painting and other artistic endeavors.
As a native of Australia, Stephen’s work is partly influenced by dot art, leavened by the impression of the working class culture from Broken Hill, the hard scrabble mining town that formed his vision. He combines pointillism with abstract backgrounds, using media such as acrylic paint on canvas and wood. Hidden written messages lie beneath the veil of dots, which mask the emotions of life. Connecting movement, color and mood, Stephen departed from the detailed pointillist technique to what he calls the 'loose' dots. Each piece capturing the emotion of that moment in time in his continuous search for happiness.
